1969 SANFL GRAND FINAL
ST ...6.3...10.7...16.12...24.15
GL...2-3....5-10....8-13...13.16

1969 VFL GRAND FINAL
RI...2.2...6.5...8.6...12.13
CA...1.4..2.7...8.10..8.12

The VFL  tigers won the AFL Grand Final
The following week the SANFL tigers were defeated

There was great controversy when Glenelg selected star Richmond forward Royce Hart
Royce Hart was concussed early in this match , recovered and showed why he is considered one of the greatest players ever , by playing a good game

There was mixed feeling about his selection for Glenelg
Royce Hart was paid $2,000 to play
He had trained with Glenelg during the season , but was picked to debut for the club in the GF
That meant one Glenelg player had to make way for his selection

What is quite bizarre is that had Glenelg not selected Royce Hart, then he could have played for Sturt on that Grand Final day
Glenelg raised the cash to entice Royce Hart
Was this is true or not,  Sturt was going to pay and play Royce Hart as well ?

being on National Service if you were stationed in another state you could play for any team you wanted without a transfer fee, as i understand it (from a hazy memory) that yes Glenelg paid Royce Hart to play & Darrell Moss was the unlucky player.......on the ''Tigers of old'' dvd Fred Phillis said (paraphrasing) ''that Royce was obviously a much better player than Darrell but i could read Darrell & knew when to lead & how he would kick it, with Royce i wasn't sure & this caused hesitation as to when to go'' as for Sturt paying well i think Neil Kerley said on the same dvd (again paraphrasing) ''that we weren't going to let Sturt get him because they knew they were sniffing around''

Confirmation of the Royce Hart availability in 1969
This from the Pride Of The Bay book.

PETER MARKER
" Of the decision to play Hart, I think if you asked every player, the end general view would have been negative, however it was a very difficult matter because Royce Hart was either going to play for Sturt or was going to play for Glenelg in the Grand Final
Jack Oatey said he would have played Royce Hart, he made it quite clear he would have played Hart had Sturt been able to secure his services."

ROYCE HART
" It was said the $2000 I received was the highest fee paid to a player for one match.
You might ask was it worth it ?
Too right!
I'd get into the ring with Cassius Clay and get knocked out 100 times for that sort of money."


And, indeed , he got knocked down , in the 1969 Grand Final !
